Nope - you are right - collect2 was a red-herring.

Yeah, I had to fix that problem first by going into the libstdc++ dir, and
doing a "make clean ; make LDFLAGS=-Wl,+s"

Wouldn't it make sense to do this by default?  Should I submit a patch to
do that?

It's not clear to me why relinking is required, if the -Wl,+s flag is used

I took a closer look at my libraries with chatr, and determined that the
problem was a thirdparty lib we were using that wasn't getting compiled
with -Wl,+s - and to make matters worse, was explicitly adding the full
path to libstdc++ on the link line - once I resolved those problems the
troubles went away.

Thanks for your help.
